THERE are three all-Ipswich derbies in the Best Badges Suffolk Veterans’ Cup on Sunday.
Foxhall Town were the biggest winners of the first round of this season’s competition, winning 9-0 at Stoke-by-Nayland. They now have home advantage when they face Ipswich Vale Exiles.
Ipswich Wanderers make the short trip to Ransomes Sports, while the other all-Ipswich tie sees Whitton United, the holders, host Coplestonians.
Last season’s runners-up Lowestoft Town, who were 5-0 winners at Cockfield United in round one, host another Ipswich-based side in Westbourne Warriors.
